The VG on top(1"x1"x1/8"x1'-1.5'aluminum angle) have a blunt front and rear (rectangular). There orientation is in the direction of travel. Travel and air flow direction seldom match at the rear especially at corners.

The fronts should be curved from bace up and back. Parallelogram with curved leading and trailing edges. Not like the side VGs.(trapezoid)
This is a poor example with witch to condemn all VGs. Poor fit and finish .In my opinion.
